  He worked for Nicor Gas as a Controls Tester for 38 years retiring in 2016. 

  He was a member of the former St. Anthony Church and currently belonged to St. Michael the Archangel Church.  He was an active member of the Msgr. George A. Dzuryo Knights of Columbus Council # 790.  He was known at the K of C for grilling the steaks for steak night for many years.  He also was very active with the Streator Fest Committee. 

  He enjoyed hunting and fishing especially hunting duck, deer and elk.  He most recently was getting into reef fishing while he was wintering in Florida. He loved vacationing in Chetek, Wisconsin and Lake Erie and traveling with his wife.  He was truly an outdoorsman and enjoyed riding his two Harley Davidson motorcycles, captaining his boat and golfing several times a week.  He was a great griller and cook and made delicious pies.  Greg had many loves but none were as important to him as his loving family that will dearly miss him.
